    Anyone going?

    I'll be there, if you come out, stop by and say hi. Unless it is right around turn in time, I'll be more than happy to sit, have a drink, and BS for a bit.....if after turn in, you are welcome to eat anything that hasn't gone to the judges.

    I am easy to miss........no big motorhome, no fancy trailer, just a guy with a cooker and an EZ up.

    Supposedly I will be right next to Jacks Old South (Myron Mixon - multi MIM champ).......if you found them.....then you find me.

    Well, when it was all said and done I wound up 8th in ribs out of 44 teams. Middle of the pack on chicken and brisket. Now pork.........pork hurt me.......43 out of 44. I guess it is back the to the drawing board on pork. My scores improved on the other 3 catogories so overall I feel like I am moving in the right direction.

    Other than being sick all weekend, I had a good time. Most of my drinking was confined to a Nyquill bottle. [​IMG]

    The best part was having my 8 year old daughter go up and grab the plaque and check.........she seemed more excited about it than I was. [​IMG]
